IMO, this is not something for DIY  :) I might be wrong though...

Hi,

At least not as a beginners project. It takes a stereo microscope to work on it and all the parts have to be made, as they cannot be bought. And if it's supposed to do anything but hovering around in a random fashion - like if it's part of a swarm - you need sensors, actuators, wireless communication and a controller, all in really tiny sizes - there's a reason these things are mostly build in research labs who have access to materials that's not in common trade.

Just look at how this one walk (in Ám steps)

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
